Hey everyone! Hope you're having an awesome day. After purchasing a few face masks (and getting hooked on them) I've decided to start a new series where I review a new mask every Friday.
Today's featured mask is the Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask.
Quite a mouthful, I agree :P
Infused with white clay and zinc, this claims to help keep your skin feeling purified for up to 7 days. Recommended for oily/combination skin types, it is designed to deep cleanse, tighten pores, remove impurities and excess sebum, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts.
It is divided into two 6ml sachets - one for each application - but I find that you can get at least two applications out of each sachet, depending on how thick you layer the mask on.
Its texture is lovely and creamy; not runny in the least. As for the self heating part, when I applied it to my face, I was expecting it to turn really hot because I was thinking of a the word sauna xD
It did however get warm after a few seconds of massaging it in. In terms of temperature, if you breathe onto the back of your hand, that is how warm it tends to get - so nothing too hot or sauna-like!
The warm feeling fades away after a couple of minutes, though.
One thing I've noticed about this is that it doesn't harden like some masks do, and washes off easily. After using it, my skin feels softer, and tauter, but definitely not in an uncomfortable way. I can confirm that it did in fact reduce the shine on my t zone and my face felt less oily than usual for the rest of the day.
In regards to the whole keeping your skin clarified for a week thing, I don't think that that is quite true, but it does make your skin feel cleaner than usual for a couple of days. The clay in the mask draws out the oil quite well, and I think it contributed to my face feeling cleaner for longer.
So if you come across this in your local Superdrug, and you have oily/combination skin, I recommend you pick one up! They're £1.29 at the moment at Superdrug so you won't be wasting a lot of money if it doesn't work for you.
Have you tried this? Or anything similar? This is the first time I have >.<
Let me know if you'd like me to do more face mask reviews! ☺
